    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Urbana

    Urbana is a city located in the west-central region of Ohio. It is home to Urbana University, a 170-year-old university that has a 1,500-seat stadium where sports lovers of all ages can enjoy watching basketball and volleyball games. While Urbana has a relatively young population, it also has a large senior community that accounts for nearly 18% of its 11,000 residents

    Seniors in Urbana have two local assisted living facilities to choose from, and there are six more in the neighboring city of Springfield. These facilities, which may also be called residential care facilities, are governed by the Ohio Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Urbana

    • While retirement income from pensions and retirement savings accounts are taxed at the state level in Ohio for seniors whose income is over a certain amount, taxpayers aged 65 and over can claim tax credits to offset this expense. Social Security benefits are not taxed, which may leave more money in the budget for assisted living in Urbana. 
    • Urbana is a very affordable place to live with an overall cost of living that is 20% below the national average and 7% below the state average. Housing is especially affordable here, which may result in lower assisted living costs.  
    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Urbana range between 19 and 85 degrees, making it one of the warmer cities in Ohio. It has an average of five months annually where temperatures are in the 70-85 degree range, which may make it a good option for seniors who enjoy being outdoors. 
    • While property crime in Urbana is considerably higher than the national average, ranking 51.3 on a 100-point scale versus the national average of 35.4, its violent crime rate is very low, coming in about 10 points below the national average at 12.5. Even so, as they're touring assisted living facilities, seniors may want to ask what security measures are in place.  
    • The Urbana area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mercy Health Urbana Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Public transportation for seniors in Urbana is provided by the Champaign County Transit System
